Just left the wonderful Yangshuo Mountain Retreat. We were not disappointed by all the previous reviews. We had a double King room, with river view, that was majestic. The rooms are very comfortable (the beds...a little less), but clean with great AC! What makes this hotel stand out is the service and the food. Everyone who works here is so... More

I can't recommend the retreat highly enough - if you are going to be in the Yangshuo region - you HAVE to stay here. 1) Firstly, as you can see from the photos - the retreat is situated right on the river in a beautiful spot. it's incredibly relaxing waking up in the morning and looking out on the river...

We stayed here as part of a private China tour for 3 nights. I would say without doubt it was the most relaxing place we have ever stayed and will always remember the stunning views. The restaurant is lovely, it's old fashioned internal decoration adds to the character of the place. So glad we opted for this.

We stayed at the YMR for 4 nights in May. The hotel is eco friendly and quite simple, but very clean, comfortable, friendly and is ideal for a chilled out stay in a completely wonderful location on the riverbank, amongst the Karsks in unbelievable scenery and a totally relaxed ambience. We had struggled to decide whether to stay within Yangshou... More

The location is all, make sure you get an upstairs river view. Plain, unfussy accommodation (a better bed would be appreciated), the staff can´t be bettered. Restaurant food got a little bit samey. Just grab a bike, cycle the paddy fields to the Dragon Bridge, lunch on a pontoon, and negotiate for a downstream, weir bouncing, bamboo punt back home... More

We had a wonderful experience at Yangshuo Mountain Retreat during our trip to China. It was our last stop before returning to USA.

We recently stayed at the Yangshuo Mountain Retreat for 4 nights. I was a bit worried about how the place would be. It turned out to be pretty good. The staff are all very friendly and courteous.

Located on the river bank and surrounded by karst peaks, this is the perfect place to unwind: breakfast on the river terrace (great coffee!), reading a book on your bedroom balcony, a bike ride through surrounding villages. The staff were friendly and helpful. The atmosphere was relaxed. The location was superb. Only downside was the poor soundproofing between rooms (possibly... More
